New Biographical Sketch Format Required for Grant Applications
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has announced that a new biographical sketch format is to be used in all grant applications with due dates on or after January 25th, 2015.
Through its Furthermore program, the J.M. Kaplan Fund supports nonfiction books about the urban experience; natural and historic resources; art, architecture, and design; cultural history; and civil liberties and other public issues.
The program seeks work that appeals to an informed general audience; demonstrates evidence of high standards in editing, design, and production; promises a reasonable shelf life; might not otherwise achieve top quality or even come into being; and "represents a contribution without which we would be the poorer."
Individual grants range from $500 to approximately $15,000 and may be used to support writing, research, editing, design, indexing, photography, illustration, and/or printing and binding.
Grant proposals are due in the Office of Research Administration (or Office of Grants & Contracts in SOM) at least 5 working days before the sponsor’s deadline. This allows time for an institutional review and correction of errors or omissions. As soon as you decide to submit a grant, contact your designated ORA or OGC specialist to let him/her know to expect your proposal. All funding proposals are now submitted on-line through the Sparta system.
